1. Triangle: It is a polygon with three sides and three angles. The three angles always add 180º.
• Equilateral Triangle: Three equal sides and three equal angles, always 60º.
• Isosceles Triangle: Two equal sides and two equal angles.
• Scalene Triangle: No equal sides and no equal angles.

2. Quadrilateral. Quadrilateral just means “four sides”. Therefore, any four sided shape is a quadrilateral, but the sides have to be straight, and it has to be 2 dimensional.
• Square: Four equal sides. Four equal angles, always 90°.
• Rectangle: Opposite sides are parallel and of equal length. Four equal angles, always 90°.
• Rhombus: Four equal sides. Opposite angles are parallel.

It's a 12 sided closed figure.
